Andrew Yang Qualifies For Next Democratic Debate

The New York Times reports:

The entrepreneur Andrew Yang has qualified for next week’s Democratic debate, bringing the lineup to seven and ensuring that the candidates onstage will not all be white, though the lineup still does not include any black or Latino candidates. A national Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday showed Mr. Yang at 4 percent. He needed to reach or exceed that mark in four polls to qualify for the debate, and this was his fourth. He had long since met the DNC’s other qualification requirement of 200,000 unique donors.

Mr. Yang will join, in alphabetical order, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the investor Tom Steyer and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts on the debate stage on Dec. 19. The debate will take place at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.
